I live in Northern Virginia and I am about to relocate to Birmingham Alabama. I am originally from Mobile so I am so excited to get back "home" after 16 years. I had RNY almost 4 years ago. Lost over 130lbs. Feel great. Still at goal weight. I have had a couple of minor complications. Just had surgery in September for an internal hernia. While I can still see my Doctor here in Virginia once a year for labs and follow up, I think it would be a great idea to have a local doctor to be able to go to incase of any more complications or bypass related emergencies. I would like it to definitely be a Bariatric Center of Excellence. I would also like to know of any support groups in the area. I love our support group here. I think they are just great, and I would like to join one in Birmingham.
